Water and Wastewater Treatment

Download our Gas Detection in Wastewater Guide

Water treatment is a large industry which encompasses many processes from collection, treatment, disposal of sewage and distribution of clean water. These processes produce a wide variety of toxic and combustible gas hazards that must be monitored on a continuous basis.

Wastewater applications are some of the harshest applications because of the humid environment in the sewer, the disgusting smells that derive from raw sewage and stagnant water.

Water and wastewater treatment plants are designed to treat all municipal waste and purify water for it to be reused. The process of water purification results in the by-product of harmful combustible and toxic gases which can create hazardous environments that must be monitored on a continuous basis.

Toxic gases also can build up in confined spaces, depleting oxygen and making those locations highly dangerous for plant personnel. a1-cbiss have a portfolio of products which are ideally suited for water treatment systems.

They are designed for all safety needs in unclassified areas, making them resistant to corrosion and highly durable in harsh environments.
